*** HCI Community Service Design Contest ***
Addison Wesley Publishers is sponsoring a
User Interface Design Contest
in connection with the publication of:
Designing the User Interface: 4th edition
Ben Shneiderman & Catherine Plaisant
Students are asked to create a Web site to help
a campus, community, neighborhood, healthcare,
philanthropic, museum, or educational organization.
By engaging students in the challenges and rewards
of community service students gain a valuable real-world
experience and make a difference in their communities.
Enter the Contest
Instructors of Fall 2004 courses in Human-Computer
Interaction, user interface design, Web usability, and
related courses in the U.S. and Canada are invited to
participate. Students can compete individually, in teams,
or as a class (that's up to you), to work with these
non-profit organizations building and improving their Web sites.
Each instructor will select a winning entry for each course
section and submit a 500-word description containing the URL
of the student work during November 5-15, 2004. Each submitting
team will get their choice of three books from the Addison-Wesley
Then the 5-member review panel will select the best of the group
for review by Ben Shneiderman and Catherine Plaisant. They
will choose the winner and arrange to appear for a guest lecture
in the class of the winning team during the first two weeks
of December 2004.
